This is so neat, I'm going to have to try this out soon! Do you know if it would work with any other types of paint? Like if I used acrylic as opposed to watercolors would that work, or would the masking not work...?

I believe that masking fluid is specific for watercolor....

Is there a mask for acrylic type paints?

Here are the ones I did (This is my first go at watercoloring, so I don't really have a technique going):


My husband and I


My mother-in-law and nephew (this one tore so I'm going to make it again)


My sister and I


Another of my husband and I (I figured out that I should outline his beard)


One of our wedding photos


My niece (this one is my favorite.  I gave it to my mother-in-law for mother's day)


My brother-in-law and niece (I gave this one to my sister-in-law for mother's day)

Aaaand that's it.  For now!  *dramatic music*  ^_^  thanks again for the amazing tute.  Without it I would never had ventured into this wonderful art.

My boyfriend and I have been dating for a year this past Friday; so, I decided that I'd attempt this for his gift since he had sketched a beautiful portrait of us for my 21st this past year.



And here's the picture I used with it.



I'd never used watercolors before...this was fun...although, the masking fluid is a pain to work with.

I'm impressed with some of these watercolors!  It was so fun to make one and I really like the outcome.  Here's my friend with a pipe.

Everyone's versions look great!

I've been trying this but I've had a few issues - any help appreciated Smiley

My first was the masking fluid (brand Windsor and Newton) was really thick. Almost too thick to brush on and still be able to control where it went - ended up with blobs everywhere. I ended up tipping out the top 1" in the bottle and giving it a REALLY good shake, which improved things some. What should the consistency be like? (I wonder if it's too cold in the room I was painting in?)

Second, the masking fluid pulls the paper too Sad I've just ordered a higher quality paper. Maybe I didn't let it dry enough? Very frustrated and wanting this to work so badly!

I think I did something like this in middle school only I think I used rubber cement instead of masking fluid, but I could be totally wrong because that was many moons ago!  Awesome job!  I totally intend on buying some masking fluid and doing this!

This is the first time I've used masking fluid but mine was relatively thin and easy to manipulate.  I don't recall the brand off the top of my head.  Perhaps you just got a bad bottle.
